    (a) Scope of authority.

    (b) Hearing required. The city council, after not less than ten (10) days' notice of the licensee, shall hold a hearing to ascertain all of the facts relating to the proposed suspension or revocation of the license. The licensee shall have full right to be represented by counsel at such hearing and may produce witnesses and evidence in his behalf at such hearing.

    (c) Notice of hearing, contents, service. Notice of a hearing relative to revocation or suspension of license shall set out the grounds for such suspension or revocation and shall command the licensee to be present at the regular meeting or called meeting of the city council and show cause, if any, why such license should not be suspended or revoked. A police officer shall serve such notice of hearing by leaving a copy thereof with the licensee or any person or employee in charge of the place of business of such licensee. Upon suspension or revocation of any license, no license fee paid shall be refunded to the licensee.
